By AccessWDUN Staff

COMMERCE — The Commerce girls softball team opened its 2020 playoffs with a dominating sweep of Chattahoochee County Tuesday at home.

The Lady Tigers routed Chattahoochee County 18-0 and 12-0 in the first round of the Class A Public tournament. They were the only northeast Georgia area team to advance on Tuesday.

Commerce next will take on the Trion-Crawford County winner on Friday at home.

It was a rough day for Region 7-3A in the opening round of the Class 3A tournament. All four teams, including Lumpkin County, North Hall, and White County were swept out of the playoffs.

North Hall was roughed up by Region 6-3A champion Coahulla Creek 8-0 and 13-1 in Dalton. White County put up a good fight on the road but was also swept by Sonoraville 5-0 and 7-3.
